as the storm is causing blackouts my next guest says our whole energy policy is wrong. he says there could be more than half a million jobs created in swing states in the next three to five years from hydrocarbon energy. mark mills is senior fellow with the manhattan institute. i was really interested to read your study. i thought one of your most interesting points was that we are oriented towards conservation and protectism of domestic resources right now but we could actually be a major producer and could be exporting energy which seems hard to get from here to there. you really think we have that much? >> well i know we have that much and this is the real surprise. in energy policy that we have to really change how we look at energy fundamentally. we've operated under the basis from almost half a century now since the big oil embargo of 1973 on the assumption that we're running out of oil, that we can't make enough here and only way out of this is find replacements for oil or conserve our way out of it. both those are important by the way, they continue to be important but what happene

is a loser. the energy department inspector general says the program was training workers who already had jobs and failed to placthem in jobs after the trading was over. in fact, only 38 percent of those who went through the program got jobs, and 16 percent of those people kept the job for more than six -- six months. imagine that. 52 percent were already working in the energy sector d did not need training to begin with. this training program that was only 16 percent success will cost taxpayers 328 nav million dollars an the price tag could go up to 400 million. this president does not have a record to stand down when it comes to his stimulus program. the big one failed, the little one failed, and they all costly too much. still to come, forecasters say when hurricane sandy heads the east coast it will be harder and wider than last year sir can i read. the latest on what some are calling for frank and storm. weak economic numbers. the white house cheering. what this white house and the president does not want you to year. year. st 4g lte is the fastest. so, which supeast 4g lte service w

, energy prices are not down and people are living the same life they lived four years ago. so that's what this race is about. not the polls. >> look, first of all, president obama won by 7.3 last time so he doesn't have the duplicate what he did in 2008 to win. secondly, there's a way that romney can win without ohio, but it takes a very complicated formula to do that. and you know, i think on the whole, i think democrats are pretty satisfied with the position they're in right now. if you had said a year ago that enthusiasm would be equal among democrats and republicans we certainly would have taken that following the 2010 election. but it's going down to the wire here. >> what about the ground game, james? how important is that in a place like ohio and i mean, the obama people seem to think they have a much better ground game than the romney campaign. >> well, they do, and if you look at some of these early voting things, really powerful for democrats. some of the stuff that i see or hear about is quite impressive. they have a much different -- they put some people say $300 million into

of this, what are you hearing? >> from the energy department. crude oil prices getting a pop right now. and back off near $86 a barrel and while gasoline prices which rose yesterday in anticipation of those refinery closures, they're sort of flat, going back down in today's session. and the energy department saying that u.s. gasoline supplies, along the u.s. east coast, may sink, charles, to their lowest levels since at least 1990's and those refineries if they can't curb production, some of them shut production altogether and also, charles out, important for traders to keep in mind, energy department saying they're delaying the weekly inventory report and remember, that's usually a market moving event like things for oil and gasoline on wednesday morning and they're saying it could be published nurse, but that day still depending on the storm damage and charles, at this point, assessing the damage and six refineries were closed along the east coast, and that was about two-thirds of overall production, so, we're still assessing the damage and still trying to see how that's going to wor

on everything from economic growth to energy prices. that and more tonight on "n.b.r."! as we go on the air tonight, hurricane sandy is ready to make landfall in the u.s., already it's an historic storm, with historic prparations. stock marketclosed. and coast lines evacuated with tens of millions of people sitting in the forecast path of the massive storm. sandy is a huge storm expected to come ashore in southern new jersey. but the hurricane force winds have been battering the eastern seaboard for hours. those winds extend out 175 miles from the center of the storm. those winds are pushing the atlantic ocean up and over many coast-lines. from rhode island, south to the jersey shore. coastal flooding is a significant risk thanks to the storm surge, potentially reaching 11 feet in new york harbor. battery park on the tip of manhattan is under a mandatory evacuation, as waves already have topped the sea wall. low lying areas are at substantial risk of flood waters, including the wall street area, especially if the worst of the surge hits during high tide tonight, at 9pm eastern time. that th

on the east coast -- philadelphia energy solutions, they are running at a reduced capacity. all of this giving a lift to the price of gasoline on the futures market. as you might expect, investors and traders are anticipating tighter supplies but keep in mind, that is offset by a decrease in demand as investors stay home -- or i should say, drivers stay home in an area that accounts for about 2 million barrels per day of gasoline demand. now, there's another part of the equation. that being the pipelines that helped to bring in the extra gasoline that's needed along the east coast. colonial pipeline, one of the largest, says it is right now looking at contingency plans to shut down in the event its customers, the refiners and some of the terminal operators, either reach capacity or shut down themselves. and at that point they say they might consider shutting down the pipeline. but again, it is a contingency plan right now. from a very rainy maryland, of course we're expecting the higher winds later today, but the rain which has been falling since about -- well, early this morning, continues fo
